season 1 opening narration (with moving action)
-----------------------------------------------
"The Name - Doctor Richard Kimble.
The Destination - Death Row, State Prison.
The Irony - Richard Kimble is innocent.
Proved guilty, what Richard Kimble could NOT prove was that moments
before discovering his murdered wife's body, he saw a one-armed man
running from the vicinity of his home.
Richard Kimble ponders his fate as he looks at the world for the
last time and sees only darkness.
But in that darkness fate moves it's huge hand"

season 2 opening narration (with still captions)
------------------------------------------------
" Richard Kimble, an innocent victim of blind justice.
Falsely convicted for the murder of his wife.
Reprieved by fate when a train wreck freed him en route
to the death house.
Freed him to hide in lonely desperation. To change his identity.
To toil at many jobs.
Freed him to search for a one-armed man he saw leave the
scene of the crime.
Freed him to run before the relentless pursuit of the police
lieutenant obsessed with his capture. "


Loosely based on the real-life case of Dr. Sam Shephard accused of
murdering his wife in Cleveland, Ohio in 1954.
